@ripjack13 @Eric Rorabaugh
In the Xenforo thread I linked above, one of the developers mentioned toggling off the RTE for individual devices.

"For now, I can only recommend toggling the RTE off with the affected device. Given the extent of the breakage, I hope that the Chromium devs will consider expediting a fix."


Can that be accomplished by just hitting the "gear" icon?

I'd test it, but I'm too lazy to update Chrome, test it, and then have to uninstall Chrome again if that isn't what he meant.

Not sure. I don't have a gear icon anywhere in the ap or on the Google play ap.

Obeekaybee. It seems at though, if you update chrome to the new version. (The crap one) and click on the gear in the post box, above, it works. Keyboard is here. Seems a it has some lag to it.
Hit the enter button.......delete..


Still up.


Nice. Good find tim. Although I like having the options in the box. I'm going to uninstall it again, and leave it be for a while till they figure out what the snafu is...

I think I'm also going to move all the posts that deal with this to its own topic.

Glad to see I can still interpret some Geek Speak correctly (from the Xenforo forum)!

I'm leaving the old Chrome on for now too.

The messages I read seemed to think that the chrome people might have a fix sometime this week as they were getting so many complaints.

It seems to be fixed, at least it's working correctly on my tablet. If your device is still having these problems, check the version of Chrome. Should be 85.0.4183.101.

It updated itself, forgot to change to manual updates on the tablet. Evidently it was a "hot fix" release, not a normal update.

Over on the Xenforo forum, they said it was automatically "rolled out" and if updates were set to manual, may need to update the app.
